I'd like to experiment with GIT for another project that I maintain,
which happens to also be hosted on SF. I'd be very interested in
hearing details about how to do that conversion, even if we end up not
doing it for Blosxom.

It's as simple as running this command:
$> mkdir blosxom.git
$> cd blosxom.git
$> editor authors # and put lines like "login=Full Name <email@...>" into it
$> git-cvsimport -v -d blosxom.cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/blosxom -A authors -m -a blosxom2
Of course you want to substitute blosxom and blosxom2 with the
corresponding project and module names. For creating the bare export for
having it somewhere online I use the informations from the Debian Wiki:
http://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/Git - "Using personal Git repositories",
of course also tweaked towards that it's no public_git on most servers
but you can put it just somewhere http:// reachable, too (like I tried).
Hope this gets you started, and will keep you updated with my findings
with respect about required/available git commands on sourceforge.
Possibly someone already did put them into their shell accounts already.
P.S.: I'm just dying laughing: I searched for "git on sourceforge" and
found <http://repo.or.cz/>. The funny part for me is: My
git-cvsimport that I did was for tetrinet - and it's the same Petr
Baudis maintaining that public git hosting that I am working together
with in tetrinet. This can't be a coincidence.
